Ship Arrivals at the Port of Quebec, 1825

The following information on arrivals, due to the condition of the papers, has been taken from various sources including the Montreal Gazette MG, Montreal Herald MH, and the Canadian Courant & Montreal Advertiser CC.
note: if ships' rigging or name of Master unpublished, it is indicated by -- (The newspapers were often filmed within their binding, making one side of some entries, unreadable, or only partly legible. This can lead to errors in the interpretation of the entry or missed entries. ) Be aware that there may be two or more ships of the same name, from the same, or different ports, during the same year. A few ships also made two trips in 1825.

Thieves

On the morning of Monday last, about 3 o'clock, an attempt was made to enter the home of the subscriber, and a Cage containing 6 SQUIRRELS, was stolen from the roof thereof. The thief in his flight left in front of the house a Boat-hook with a Stick, which may lead to his discovery.
A generous reward will be given to any person giving information leading to the detection of the thief.

Quebec, August 1st 1825

Roads:— Great efforts have been made for some time past in the City and neighbourhood to improve our Streets and Roads. In many places McAdam's plan of road making has been adopted with success ; it however meets with these difficulties which always attend everything new, owing chiefly to imperfect execution, and the want of the necessary care for keeping the work in good repair. The nature of these Roads is a pavement of small pieces of broken stone, laid on a foundation of the common soil, nearly level, but rounded off a little towards the sides cleared of all hard and bulky substances, and free from the operation of water under the road. . . . . .

This is John Loudon McAdam (1756-1836), who had surmised that the key to rapid vehicle transit was the preservation of the road bed of natural soil in a dry state by making the surface layer watertight. By 1830, tar and asphalt were used to seal McAdam's roads. When mixed with sand and stones, the mixture came to be known as tarmac. . Macadamized roads.

Improvement:—
Two new Settlements were commenced in 1817, in the rear of the last Settlements of the Chaudière, by one Mr. Pozer, and old respectable inhabitant of Quebec, and the other by Mr. Hanna, formerly Watch Maker in this City. Mr. Pozer placed in his Settlement, Germans, many of whom have left it, but it is now fast settling by Canadians ; Mr. Pozer has built Mills there, and frequently resides on his Domain, Excellent samples of Hemp have come from this settlement.
Mr. Hanna's Settlement on the opposite side of the Chaudière, now contains twenty-seven families, mostly Irish from the North. They have sent to Quebec lately 700 yards of Liunen [Linen ?], of Grist from 700 to 1500, certainly superior to anything of the same fineness which is usually imported, and have met with a quick sale. Next year they expect to make 1500 yards. The webs were only grass bleached, the colour good, the thread round and equal, and the weaving extremely close and well done. We have also seen samples of Sewing Thread from the same place, which is pronounced by good judges equal to anything imported. The Settlement is called St. Charles de la Belle Alliance, and is 64 miles from Quebec.

Communication
We would take the liberty of intimating to the numerous visitors now in our city, that among the numerous excellent Steam Boats which navigate our river, the tow-boat Hercules, the swiftest of them all, departs this evening at 8 o'clock.
She has excellent accomodations for passengers, and is commanded by Captain Brush, the most experienced captain in the River, long and well known as faithful to his duty and most attentive to his passengers. At this season of the year, she seldom tows any thing down, so that we regard her as one of the best of conveyance to Quebec.

Died
In Quebec on the 1st inst. at the Quebec Hotel, Captain Thomas Morin, of the brig Jane from Dublin.
The brig Jane, Captain Morrin, sailed from Dublin on 1st May 1825 with 111 settlers, and arrived at Quebec on July 2nd.

Quebec, 4th August, 1825
Irish Emigrants:
Thirty thousands pounds were voted by the Commons of the United Kingdom, in June, for the promoting of Emigration from Ireland to Canada. Thirty thousands pounds for this purpose, or a hundred times that amount, will do little good in Ireland. Justice is the only specific for the evils of a nation. Perhaps fifty thousand Irishmen were withdrawn annually from Ireland, during twenty years of the late war, to fight the battles of the Empire by sea and land to die on ship board in every sea and under every climate, to leave their bones in India, Africa and America, Holland, the Peninsula, France and the Netherlands, and all the while the population went on increasing. Getting rid of a people is no new invention in the art of governing them. Somebody has profited or will profit by the past, present, and future grants ; and we heartily wish that the poor Irish Emigrants may also profit by them. What surprises us, is that some of our brothers Journalists in Canada, should express some degree of alarm at the consequences of so many Irish Emigrants coming to these Provinces. We beg those gentlemen not to be alarmed. This is a large continent, with plenty of room for every body. We believe that the greatest part of the Irish, having been so long confined, make use of their liberty, to take an extensive range ; but if they do stay in the Provinces, they will endeavour to live at peace with those amongst whom they have come to reside ; if no injustice is done them, if they are left free to enjoy the fruits of their labour, they will soon perceive that their happiness will depend on their own good conduct ; that if they go wrong, they will only have themselves to blame ; no one on whom to wreck their vengeance, and charge with the evils sometimes of their own creating. They will in a short time make good and peaceable subjects in the Canadas, and thousands of them have already proved to be in the United States. A very short time will convince them that Catholic and Protestant, Orange men and Ribbon men, and the hostile feelings perpetuated by a system of unequal Laws, are entirely misplaced in America. Peaceable industry, sobriety, obedience to the Laws, attachment to the interests of their adopted country, equal justice to all, will form a common rallying point for all Irishmen in Canada, and make them useful, and we should hope, thriving citizens of this young and rising country.— Old Gazette

Quebec, August 9th
Amongst the late arrivals, is the brig Agenoira (Agenoria), from Aberyiswith (Aberystwyeth), on board which came 15 Welsh settlers — their singular costume and dialect render them objects of much curiosity. The Welsh are in general a hardy and industrious race and we should be happy in seeing some further importations of them, as with these qualifications they promise to make steady and useful settlers.— Mercury

Two brigs built by J.O. Brunet, Esq. of 125 tons each, were safely launched a few weeks back, one of them named the George, was built at Three Rivers, and sails for London ; the other, called the Sir F.N. Burton, was built at Deschambault, and sails for Halifax.
Newfoundland, July 6th. — Arrived, Maria & Harriet, Cocken, from Quebec ; July 12th, Young Oliver, Troude, from Quebec.
Eastport, July 9th. — Arrived, Susan, Sullivan, 16 days from Quebec.
The Laprairie, Captain Morin, and the Chambly, Captain Ryan, left their respective wharves yesterday afternoon on a pleasure trip to the Baron of Renfrew ; the latter through accident got aground within half a mile of the Renfrew, and did not get off until nine o'clock in the evening. Captain Morin, on perceiving the Chambly agraound, sent his boat on board, to take such passengers as wished to leave her. With the exception of a slight shower for a short time, the weather was very fine ; but for the accident of two gentlemen, who were leaning against the railing of the Laprairie, and by its giving way, fell overboard, the trip was delightful. They were picked up immediately, without having sustained any injury whatsoever. The number of passengers was upwards of two hundred.— Old Gazette
Casualty:
The Steam Boat, New Swiftsure, lost one of her men overboard, named Parant, while lying at Hunt's Wharf last Thursday afternoon. Every exertion was made to recover the body, but without success.
Accident:
On Monday afternoon a man fell into the river between the Steam Boats Malsham and Swiftsure, opposite point à Callier. After having lain in the water about five minutes he was taken up apparently in a lifeless situation, medical aid was called promptly to his assistance, when after using the proper remedies in such cases, Doctor Roe succeeded in restoring animation.
Grammatical Smoking
     As smoking is an innocent indulgence and as it is customary with people of all classes to relate the news of the day, with cigars in their mouths ; and as the generality of smokers make an awkward appearance, in consequence of their ignorance of the theory of punctuation in smoking, the following system is recommended:
A simple puff serves for a comma
Puff, puff, a semicolon
Puff, puff, puff, a colon
Six puffs, a period
     A pause with a cigar kept in the mouth, represents a dash __________ longer or shorter in continuance.
     With the under lip raise the cigar almost against the nose for an exclamation ! And to express great emotion, even to the shedding of tears, only raise as before, the cigar to the end of the nose.
     For an interrogation ? it is only necessary to open the lips and draw the cigar round the corner of the mouth.
     Taking the cigar from the mouth and shaking the ashes from the end is a conclusion of a paragraph.
     And throwing it in the fire is [fi]nal and stylish pause.
     Never begin a story with a half smoked cigar ; for to light another while conversing, is not only a breach of politeness, but interferes with the above system on punctuation, which destroys all energy and harmony of expression.

St. John's, Newfoundland, July 7th
On Saturday last, the brig Staunton arrived from London in the short passage of 23 days, having on board David Buchan Esq., Sheriff of this Island, and family. The Shannon was 18 days from Start Point. Captain Buchan will not be sworn into Office until the arrival of His Excellency the Governor, with the Charter of the Supreme Court, which will not be for some time, as the Governemnt has determined upon re-annexing the Island of Anticosti, as well as that part of the Coast of Labrador beyond the Straits of Bellisle, to the Government of Quebec.

Halifax July 27th:
The population of Nova Scotia, by the census of 1817, came to 78,345 ; but as it was confessedly imperfect and Cape Breton has been since annexed to us, our present population is commonly estimated as 100,000 ; which is probably a very near estimate to the truth.

Quebec
We understand that the Census of this Town, under the late Act, is nearly completed, and that the population of the City amounts to about 22,000 without including the military and transient persons, which in the summer season probably exceeds 8,000. The Coves from l' Ance des Meres to Sillery, are a Town of four miles in extent. We should suppose that at this moment Quebec and an extent of a few miles round it contains about 40,000 souls. — Old Gazette


Quebec August 16
The following circumstances lately occurred in this Garrison which reflects the higest credit upon the young soldier who so honorably did his duty — Private George Dow, 71st Light Infantry, whilst on his post as Sentry, in front of the King's Wood Yard, between 1 and 3 o'clock on the 9th inst. was accosted by a man, whose name, we are informed, is Hugh McGinly, who persuaded him to desert, by representing to him that the soldiers who had deserted from his corps were all doing well, and further to induce him to go off, he promised Dow plain clothes and a horse to carry him, if he would accompany him that night. The Soldier, a native of Glasgow and only 19 years of age, pretended to lend a willing ear to the suggestions of McGinly, but on the latter proposing to go for some spirits that they might drink together, Dow seized him and detained him as a prisoner till the relief came round, when McGinly was taken before a Magistrate, Mr. D'Estimauville, by whom he was committed to take his trial at the criminal term in September next for the offence, of persuading a Soldier to desert his Majesty's service — We understand that Dow has been promoted for his highly meritorious conduct.
We understand that His Excellency Major General Sir Peregrine Maitland has directed the pension of a discharged soldier named William Thoms to be stopped, he having aided and encouraged soldiers to desert from this Garrison. The conduct of this man is particularly reprehensible as the pension had been granted to him for a service of only 14 years and not on account of any wounds received in action. — Mercury

The late easterly wind has brought up a number of vessels, some of which have been upwards of four weeks in the river. Amongst these arrivals are the Shallet and Perseverance on their second voyage. Others are daily expected. The number of arrivals to this date is 487, and it is supposed will exceed 600 at the close of the season.
The Governor Halkett, Dixon, arrived on the 17th from Hull was struck by lightning on the 17th inst. off Cape Rozier, about 16 miles WSW. It came down the main top-gallant-mast, which, with the main-top-mast were torn to pieces, raised up the main deck near the main-mast and injured the long boat — one man in the act of handing the sail on the top-gallant-yard, was so much scorched that he was ___ed to be lowered to the deck, and another near the main-mast was down, and his skin much burnt from his neck down his left side, to his feet.— The clothes of both were literally burnt to rags.— They have partly recovered, but are still very ill.
Nassau, May 17th.— The Mary and Elizabeth, Cavan, from Jamaica to Quebec, is wrecked at Mayagana ; the crew and part of the cargo saved and arrived there.

Sea Serpent at Halifax:
The Nova Scotian of July 27, contains a particular account, on the authority of several witnesses, of the appearance of a large sea serpent in the harbour of Halifax, on the afernoon of the 15th. It was seen by a young gentleman who happened to be riding past the wharf at Mr. Goreham's tan-pit, accompanied by some ladies. He raised his head about three feet out of water, its body was the size of a large log, and appeared to be at least 60 feet long, and it forced itself along by a wiggling sort of motion. It remained above water about five minutes, at a distance of about sixty yards. The editor of the Nova Scotian went to the spot and learned these and other particulars, which were confirmed by the young gentleman, the ladies, Mr. Goreham, his family and servants. It is also confirmed with additional particulars by Mr. William Barry of Halifax, who was going into the harbour the same evening in a whaling boat, and with the men in the boat, observed it for some time. He saw the head distinctly, and at one time eight coils of his body above the water, and is persuaded that he is at least 60 feet in length.— Boston Daily Advertiser
We regret to learn that a great deal of sickness prevails in this District, particulary in the Townships of Kingston, Loborough and Portland. Many families, whose prospects at the commencement of the season were highly flattering, are wholly unable to secure their grain, &c.— and to them, we fear, the fruits of a year's inductry will be entirely lost.— U.C.

Sailing of the Great Ship
The Baron of Renfrew weighed anchor and was towed from the place which she occupied near the Falls of Montmorency, on Tuesday last at noon, by the Steam-boat Hercules. The tide was about half flood when she got under weigh, and she proceeded slowly roung the west point of the Island of Orleans, and disappeared behind Point Levi at a quarter before two o'clock. She was accompanied beyond the Point by the Malsham Steam-boat and the Lauzon Steam Ferry-boat with parties of ladies and gentlemen from Town. The Malsham had on board the Band of the 68th Regiment, which, as well as the parties on both Steam Boats went on board the Baron, the decks of which were crowded with people. The Steam Boats, having again taken their company on board, left her behind the Point proceeding in tow of the Hercules, which will only leave her at the Bic.
The wind was up the River during the whole time the Baron was in sight, from her leaving her anchorage ground. She however hoisted her sails, hauled close to the wind, and several times seemed to gain on the Hercules. The sight was grand as she came abreast of the Point of the Island ; her whole length about 309 feet being then seen from Town, and her four masts crowded with sail. The Hercules ahead, and the Malsham alongside, with the Lauzon astern, appeared little better than long-boats. Several sail boats in company were hardly discernable. When they arrived in the rear of the Rock of Point Levi, the Baron's masts and sails still towered above the rock, and were visible at each side of it. In the fore-ground there were about forty or fifty Indian Wigwams, and numerous Indian canoes, one of which, after landing three passengers, an Indian was carrying on his head up to high water mark ; thus offering in one view the largest ship in the world, the perfection of the application of steam in navigation, and the first, and certainly a most igenious effort of man in the savage state for water conveyance.
It is not probable that any other vessel of the size of the Baron of Renfrew, will be built for some time — The public interest taken in this ship has been nearly as great as in the Columbus.
The following statement of the cargo of the Baron has been handed to us by a mercantile friend :
Estimation in Tons measurement of the cargo of the ship Baron of Renfrew.
43634   Deals, average measurement 6 tons per 100 ps. 2616
517   ps. of hardwood, 30 cubic feet each, and 11 knees 388
3207   Logs Pine 50 4009
24659   Pipe Staves, 24 M. standard, 12 ton per M. 288
75765   W.I. Staves, 75 M. pieces, 3 ton per M. 225
84   Masts, at an average of 24 inch, each 8 ton per M. 672
337   Spars, at an average of 24 inch, each 2 ton per M. 674
4788   Ash Oar Rafters, 24 pieces, 1 ton per M. 200
23098   ps. Lathwood, 160 p. cord, is 144 cord per M. 432
34852   Treenails, 4000 of 12 inches make a load 11
    Amount of the Cargo in Tons 9,515
Part of the Cargo, as Oars and Staves, is estimated from the stowage they require, and not from cubical contents.
If the measurement of the Baron is about 5000 tons, and taking the usual Quebec allowance of 5000 feet in the rough for every 100 tons measurement, there will be upwards of 6000 tons of timber wrought up in the construction of this floating fabric. — Old Gazette

  Shipping Intelligence:—
The Cicero, and Gilbert Henderson, and upwards of 15 square-rigged vessels are in the river, bound up. The greater part are below Kamouraska and without an easterly wind cannot reach Quebec for several days.
The Baron of Renfrew was abreast of Father Point at dusk last Saturday evening, steering well with a strong favourable breeze, and all her canvas set ; the Julianna, Fotherinham, hence for London, about 5 miles ahead. The Baron touched four times in going down, but was not in any way injured, having occasion to use the pumps only once previous to the Steam-boat leaving her. The Hercules arrived at Quebec at 5 p.m. yesterday ; she ran up from several miles below Bic, the wind most of the time strong ahead in less than 24 hours.

A report prevailed that the Herald Yatch [sic], having on board His Lordship the Governor in Chief was at the Traverse ; it was we apprehend, premature, or we should have had further intelligence this morning.— Through the master of the Elizabeth, which sailed from Greenock on the 28th July, reports that a public dinner was to be given there on the 30th, in compliment to the Earl of Dalhousie, who would embark with the Countess and suite on the following day, direct for Canada.
The desertion of seamen from vessels arriving in this port continues to a serious degree. We observe a Handbill posted up in various parts of the town offering a reward for the apprehension of no less than eleven men from one ship. Some friend of the Deserters, has torn off the part containing the names from almost every one of the Bills.

A young man calling himslef Thomas Wait, formerly of Chazy, State of New York, was employed in a Carding Machine somewhere in the vicinity of Quebec last summer, traded in Montreal last winter, this spring went into partnership with Charles Butler, carrying on business at the mouth of Chateauguay River, where he continued about four months, then taking about 2 or 300 dollars on pretence of paying demands in Montreal, absconded with the money. Said Wait is light complexion, light hair, shows his front teeth when he speaks, is about 5 feet 10 inches high, slender make, and about 26 years of age.— This is to warn any person against such a character, and intended to prevent the unsuspicious from being imposed upon. It is supposed he has proceeded to Upper Canada. Printers in Upper Canada and the United States are requested to give the above an insertion.

On Monday night [Sept. 19] the Steam Boat Quebec was on her passage to this port, she struck on the rocks near the small Island opposite the city, close to the buoy which marks the channel. Exertions were making during the whole of yesterday to get her off, but she remained firmly aground at a late hour last night, and doubts were entertained that she would not be extricated from her unpleasant situation for some time.

  The bark John, Young, with timber from Miramichi, bound to London, was wrecked on the night of the 9th ult. the weather being thick and hazy ; on the north west bar of Bryon Island ; crew, with all her rigging, &c. were saved.
On Tuesday evening we were informed of the following melancholy accident, but in consequences of the Quebec Steam Boat being aground in the middle of the River, we could not ascertain the cause of the calamity, we made frequent enquiries relative to the circumstances, but none of the persons we spoke to were able to give us information sufficient (in our opinion) to warrant our inserting it, and as we did not like to give publicity to what might be deemed uncertain at the time, we omitted noticing it on Wednesday.
The subject of this unfortunate occurrence was a man highly respected by all who knew him, and will be greatly lamented by those who had an association with him in private life. The following from the Herald of Thursday.
We regret to state, that as the Steam Boat Quebec, on her last trip from Quebec, was coming through the Richelieu rapids, Louis Foy, Esq. of Quebec, who was a passenger, fell over-board during the night, and was drowned. The particulars of this melancholy accident we have not been able to precisely to ascertain.
The Steam Boat Quebec, still remains firm on the rocks, and it is not known how soon she may be got off.
[see newspaper account of the inquest into his drowning]
A Captain Davies, commander of one of the traders now lying at Quebec, a few days ago threw himself into the river by the window of his own cabin, and was drowned. No reason can be assigned for this rash act. The body was seen to rise to the surface of the water, by some gentlemen standing on the beach ; but supposing it to be that of some person who had been drowned before, they made no efforts to save the unfortunate individual in question.— Herald
An exhibition of fireworks which has been some time in preperation, took place last Saturday Evening on the Esplanade, and afforded considerable amusement to a good number of Spectators. It is a question, however, if such practises ought to be encouraged in the vicinity of houses covered with shingles, from their liability, particularly in dry weather, to take fire by the rockets decending on them.
